Grace, Howell and Matsuyama Feature In Thursday's US PGA Championship Treble

The US PGA Championship gets underway at Quail Hollow in North Carolina on Thursday and we have trawled through the opening day groupings to provide a tempting 5/1 threeballs treble, with Branden Grace, Charles Howell III and Hideki Matsuyama all tipped to prosper...

US PGA Championship Threeball TrebleOddsWon/LostBet
Tips: Howell III to beat Song and McNabb @ 4 / 6  
Matsuyama to beat Poulter and Els @ 83 / 100  
Grace to beat Perez and Bjorn @ 1 / 1  
Treble Pays: @ 5 / 1  

12.40pm - Charles Howell III -- Younghan Song -- Dave McNab
Threeball Odds:

Charles Howell III is a worthy 4/6 favourite in this group as he has a solid record at Quail Hollow, where he has picked up five top-25 finishes during his appearances at the Wells Fargo Championship.

Admittedly the course has undergone major renovations in the past twelve months but Howell's experience of the venue should count for plenty and he ticks several boxes when it comes to statistics that we think will be key this week, with the American ranking 13th for greens in regulation percentage and tied 30th for par-5 performance on the PGA Tour this season.

Howell is plenty long enough off the tee where a premium will be placed on driving distance and a player who boasts a first round scoring average of 68.83 (ranks 2nd) on the tour this year should have too much quality for the talented South Korean Younghan Song, who performed with credit at The Open, and the 51-year-old veteran Dave McNabb.
Tip #1: Charles Howell III to win @ 4/6 with Coral.

12.45pm - Hideki Matsuyama -- Ian Poulter -- Ernie Els
Threeball Odds:

Hideki Matsuyama ranked as the best bet in our USPGA Championship Preview and the Japanese star can hit the ground running after winning the WGC Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone on Sunday. Matsuyama showed when winning four of five starts at the back end of 2016 that he is a player worth backing when he is hot and boy is he hot right now.

The 25-year-old is primed for a maiden major title and it bodes well that he ranks 22nd for driving distance, tied 6th for GIR percentage and tied 7th for par-5 performance this term, while he boasts a first round scoring average of 69.87.

Matsuyama can come out of the blocks quickly and he can get the better of Ian Poulter, who has enjoyed some decent form of late but his lack of length could count against him. Meanwhile, Ernie Els has a best of tied 35th at the Byron Nelson to show from his past sixteen starts worldwide, with the South African only making the weekend in seven of those events.
Tip #2: Hideki Matsuyama to win @ 83/100 with Coral.co.uk.

5.55pm - Branden Grace -- Pat Perez -- Thomas Bjorn
Threeball Odds:

Branden Grace is another player who looks to be a nice fit for Quail Hollow this year as he goes plenty long enough off the tee with a driving distance average of 297 yards-plus, while he ranks 38th for GIR percentage.

The South African hasn't missed a cut in his past nine strokeplay starts and he arrives in fine fettle following a recent tie for 6th at The Open.

In contrast, Pat Perez has three missed cuts and a disqualification to show from his previous six outings, while Thomas Bjorn has missed six cuts in thirteen events worldwide during 2017.
Tip #3: Branden Grace to win @ Evens with Coral bookmakers.
